Silversea Expedition Cruises To DEI DEI HOT SPRINGS (Fergusson Island)

DEI DEI HOT SPRINGS (Fergusson Island)

Fergusson is one of the three biggest and mountainous islands in the Milne Bay Province, and part of the D’Entrecasteaux Islands. On Fergusson’s south side are the famous Dei Dei geysers — natural hot springs that periodically erupt with vapour steam next to mud pools and a warm stream. The hot springs are still used by locals to cook food in palm frond and pandanus leaf baskets placed into the boiling hot water. Birds in the area include Eclectus Parrots, Yellow-bellied Sunbirds and the endemic Curl-crested Manucode – a bird-of-paradise.

Excursions in DEI DEI HOT SPRINGS (Fergusson Island)

Expedition activities with Silversea Expedition team

Discover Deidei, the southern tip of Ferguson that was once an active volcanic area. While these days there are no actual volcanic eruption or lava flow in living memory in the area, the area is still active as far as underground thermal activities are concerned.


After a wet landing onto a white sandy beach, you will be able to discover this village while enjoying the beautiful scenery, hike to the geysers and hot springs, located in an area near the village where the super-heated water comes to surface in ponds and geysers. On the way look out for birds including Channel-Billed Cuckoo, Blyth's Hornbill, Golden-Crowned Cisticola and Red-Capped Flowerpeckers.


For those not keen on the walk to the geysers, there is the option of an easier visit to the Budoya Catholic Mission Station. This is one of the oldest churches that was set up in the southern part of Papua New Guinea and has its own interesting history. If there is time and interest, visit the nearby primary school that is run by the Catholic church.
